The electrical trade covers a wide variety of occupations in the construction, civil engineering, transport and manufacturing sectors. Electricians are needed in heavy industry such as hydroelectric power stations underneath dams where they service turbines, generators and voltage regulators, all the way to rigging up theatre lights for a hit musical.

Electricians working on electrical circuits have to be licensed after completing a TAFE qualification and apprenticeship. The industry is extensively regulated with standards governing electrical installation, testing and servicing procedures, safety and control mechanisms such as fuses and switches, and ensuring the most advanced technological innovations are adopted.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.

Expertise in Action

There is an inherent risk in the electrical trades, principally from electrocution from live current, faulty equipment and improper earthing. Experts working in the electrical trade are essential in cases regarding investigations to assess damage and repair costs from an incident such as:

  • A workplace accident resulting in property damage.
  • Where an electrician was harmed in a workplace accident.
  • Whether faulty electrical work led to the harm of others.

Experts may also be required to comment on whether correct electrical design and safety control measures were implemented within the infrastructure during the engineering, manufacturing or construction process.
